Now what? Do you keep offering or go to another listing and hope for better response?
It's up to you. Is that contract your perfect contract? Will you be upset if you let it slip away? I know we're all trying to get a great deal, but if it's the right contract for you, the difference is $1500, over the life of your contract that's not much but if you are trying to pay upfront it's that much more you need available. I'd say if you really want it, can afford to increase your offer, then counter and see where it goes. The worst they can say is no again. When my first offer was rejected, I asked my broker what my resort was selling for and she gave me the current average so I upped my offer and we ended up meeting in the middle of my original and the sellers asking price. I did offer closing costs and we prorated the 2013 MFs.
